Hey guys im about to buy a 1994 mx6 with 104,000 clicks on it.. the owner has told me that the timing belt(s) need to be replaced..

Just wondering how much this costs and where this can be done around melbounre. Im in the eastern suburbs and dont mind driving abit for quality work. Ide rather have someone work on the car that wants to do the job. and not a hassel for them.. :)

The other question is what else is due to go on the car or needs to be replaced/repaired around this time or in the near/distant future?
The car has been kept in good nick up until now :)

thanks in advance guys!
you may make me an honourary member just around the corner :)

Greetings v64 I have recently purchased a 93 MX6 which had 95k so I also have wondered about the cost of replacing a timing belt etc.

I posted a thread here http://www.mx6.com/board/showthread.php3?threadid=4810 and found out that belt is due for replacement at 105k and other belts such as the air con and alternator are usually replaced at the same time (my air con belt has visibly perished)

One of our members, Ric Danger, paid $700 to get all the belts done as well as the usual oil, filters etc. I am not sure the name of the place, but I'm pretty sure it was in Melbourne.

Hopefully Ric will see this post and let you know where it was as he seemed quite impressed with their work.

Good luck with the purchase - BTW if you want a Road Test report on the MX6 (prepared by the NRMA which = RACV) then just email me at [email protected] and I will forward it to you.

After I'd had my car back for a month from the fella that did the belt work the belts got really squeaky on start up and air-con cut in and power steering - like they were all too loose.

Anyway ditched him in favour of a couple of cool guys up in Fairfield

Pross and Marco at Enhanced Motorworks - they do a lot of porsche stuff but they are really nice down to earth guys who know their stuff. Recently did my front axles/cvs and refurbished the rear calipers.
